Nice campus with a closeby local scene. Great health and wellness services. They're able to refer students to the Dept of Psychiatry so they're able to fill prescriptions. The local groups and dorms really try to keep students involved and theres always a festival or something cool going on. Nice food options. Definitely the place to go for a medical degree
